USA: Pro-choice activists rally against anti-abortion events in Milwaukee

United States, Milwaukee
July 15, 2019 at 08:22 GMT +00:00 · Published

Around 150 protesters from women's rights groups in Wisconsin and neighbouring states gathered at Red Arrow Park in Milwaukee on Sunday, to oppose the presence of fundamentalist Christian anti-abortion organisation 'Operation Save America' (OSA).

Activists from a number of pro-choice groups spoke in favour of increased access to abortion and voiced their concern about the ongoing efforts to restrict abortion rights in some US states. The event was specifically organised in response to the ongoing OSA rallies.

In an effort to mock OAS's rally, the pro-choice groups created a parody of OSA called Garbage Fyre Fest. Their centrepiece was a large inflatable trash bin, with a name as a spoof on the well-known failed Fyre Fest.

In addition to campaigning for an end to abortion OSA is also highly critical of both homosexuality and Islam, with current leader Rusty Thomas saying that the September 11 terrorist attacks were God's punishment for abortion.
